Keeyask Currently Ahead Of Schedule, Though Over-Budget

The Keeyask generating station may be put into service sooner than expected 

According to Dave Brown, the project manager, speedier-than-expected winter progress has lead to the possibility of having the first unit put into service by the fall of 2020, almost a year ahead of the original schedule. 

 

Despite the anticipated early completion, Brown said that they need a further 10% improvement and no major risks if they want to keep control of the budget. 

 

Brown added that shortening the construction period will reduce costs, which are currently estimated at a total of just under $9 billion. 

 

Manitoba Hydro says that they have identified more than 100 ideas to save more than half a billion dollars.
